With the Rotax (912ULS at least) restricted to day VFR, is the 12iS really an option for flight schools or prospective builders who want to use it for an instrument ticket?
In other words, can I build a 12iS and get my instrument ticket in it (including checkride) despite the limitations placed on the Rotax? If so, how?
